coffee table of the week

Melancholic about dressing up? Missing the sound of layers of silk rustling with your every stride? Too little big venue drama in your life this year? Oh we can relate. Fortunately, there are ways to keep your big robes (and yourself) entertained at home – provided you manage to secure one of TASCHEN’s last few XXL homage tomes to Valentino and the beauty of his creations.

Presented in a silk-clad clamshell box in  bespoke Valentino red, it is the ultimate companion for a little early-evening cat-walking at home, for which we pair it with Glas Italia’s multicoloured coffee table by Pierro Lissoni. Because a fashionable tome is best displayed on its own runway, no?
